American Cancer Society Road To Recovery

Transportation can be one of the biggest roadblocks to cancer treatment. As a volunteer driver for the American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program, you can help provide patients in need with a free ride to treatment.

For those who cannot drive themselves or have no other means of getting to cancer-related medical appointments, volunteers donate their time to give patients a much-needed ride.

A willingness to help - Right now, one of the biggest barriers to cancer care is transportation. Because, even the best treatment can’t work if a patient can’t get there.

Family and friends may help, but over the course of several months, they may not always have the time or resources to provide every ride.

That’s why a successful transportation assistance program can be a tremendous asset to the community, and an inspiration to a volunteer. Our volunteers have provided hundreds of thousands of rides for patients, but the need for drivers continues to accelerate.

How it works
To ensure quality drivers, the American Cancer Society screens every volunteer. They must also complete online training courses to prepare them for their new role.
